Airline earns second consecutive win, sweeps all 10 categories

ATLANTA, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Corporate travel managers again rated Delta Air Lines No. 1 in this year's Business Travel News Annual Airline Survey. The airline ranked first among all carriers in key categories including: Value of Relationships with Account Managers and Sales Representatives; Distribution Channels; Complaint/ Problem Resolution; Quality of Customer Service; and Networks, Airline Partnerships and Frequencies.

Delta also earned the distinction of being the first carrier in the survey's 15-year history to be rated No. 1 in all 10 categories. 

"This award reflects how our most important corporate customers continue to embrace the $3 billion we are investing to improve our flying experience while highlighting the hard work and service commitment of our 80,000 employees," said Ed Bastian, Delta's president. "Recognition from our most frequent customers is the most important recognition we can receive. To finish first a second year in a row and in all 10 service delivery categories is a great acknowledgement of our efforts to build a better airline." 

"We offer our congratulations to Delta Air Lines for their strong showing across all the categories we measured in our latest Annual Airline Survey. Their efforts over the past several years are clearly resonating within the business travel community," said Tim Reid, vp-Group publisher, The BTN Group.
